Welcome to Beaverland: #SciFriBookClub Author & Reseacher Q&A – Leila Philip & Emily Fairfax


How would you describe beavers to someone who has never heard of them? Maybe you’d call them nature’s engineer, or you’d mention that they’re mammals with flat tails, ever-growing teeth and water-resistant fur, or perhaps that they are a keystone species that help maintain ecosystems across the country! We’ve gathered two experts who have dedicated their recent work to telling you all about these weird and wonderful animals. Come with your questions for Leila Philip, author of ‘Beaverland: How One Weird Rodent Made America’, and Emily Fairfax, beaver and ecohydrology researcher, about these amazing hodgepodge creatures.
